‘You people are confused’—Reactions trail JAMB’s suspension of NIN for UTME registration

Reactions have continued to trail the suspension of National Identification Number (NIN) as one of the requirements to register for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

JAMB had on Saturday morning announced the suspension via its verified Twitter handle, after several complaints of difficulties and alleged extortion by officials during the registration process.

“NIN Is Suspended For 2020 Registration. Candidates Are To Only Send Their Names To 55019 To Create Profile. No Need For NIN For 2020 Registration,” JAMB announced on Saturday.
